Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-5148) Fixes for problems with figures in documentation

Fixes for problems with figures in documentation
------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-5148
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5148
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.7.1.1
            Reporter: Kim Haase
            Assignee: Kim Haase
            Priority: Minor


There are several problems with figures in the documentation. (Only the Tuning and Developer's
Guides have figures.)

1) The build.xml file doesn't copy over the GIF files, only the JPEG files:

    <copy todir="${dita.output.dir}/${manual.name}">
      <fileset dir="${dita.src.dir}/${manual.name}" includes="*.jpg"/>
    </copy>

This means that in the output of a clean build, only the one-page HTML and PDF output (which
use the JPEG) look correct; in the frames HTML output, the alt text appears but the figures
don't. The trunk build on the Derby web site has the GIF files, but not because the build.xml
file put them there.

If the line is changed to the following, the output directory contains the GIF files:

      <fileset dir="${dita.src.dir}/${manual.name}" includes="*.jpg,*.gif"/>

2) The Tuning Guide source file ctundepth32379.dita (Using the statement cache) has two figures,
one of which specifies its expanse attribute as "page" instead of "column". This causes the
caption to appear at the far left side of the page in the one-page HTML and PDF. Changing
the expanse value to "column", and also removing the align="center" attribute from the <image>
tag, creates reasonable-looking output in the HTML.

The output of the second figure (stmt_os.jpg) is very large in the PDF (see pages 19-20 of
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/tuning/tuningderby.pdf). For some reason I have a version
of that file in one of my workspaces that has the same height-width dimensions but fewer bytes
(16800 bytes vs. 57415). If I use that, the PDF output fits in the column.

3) The Developer's Guide source file cdevdeploy855368.dita (Embedded deployment application
overview), unlike the other DITA source files that contain figures, does not specify the attribute


  expanse="column"

for its two <fig> elements. Putting this in for consistency makes sense.

Two figures in the Developer's Guide PDF are also way too big (Figure 4 and Figure 6, dead.jpg
and itserv_os.jpg). In fact, several figures in the devguide are too big in the PDF, though
only Figures 4 and 6 overhang the margin. The big ones are much larger than the others:

These are the smaller ones --

-rw-rw-r--   1 chaase   javaeast   15520 Mar 26  2008 system_os.jpg

I find that opening these large JPEG files in MS Paint and then saving them again as JPEG
shrinks them so that they look correct in the PDF and just the same in the one-page HTML:

-rw-rw-r--   1 chaase   javaeast   11468 Mar 22 16:50 lockwa2.jpg
-rw-rw-r--   1 chaase   javaeast   13519 Mar 22 16:59 lockwa3.jpg

I will file a patch for these modifications shortly. I'd like to commit the patch in a day
or so, so please let me know if you see any problems with it.
